I expect it's down to some work that's going on but I've checked my published pages in firefox and chrome (refreshing as well) and I'm getting blank spaces where the ebay modules should be.

I checked your page on best indoor play tents and I can see the ebay products. I also checked one of the giraffe pages and it is fine, too.  I use FF

Marie - if the problem persists even after a browser restart, please let us know (with a link to one of those pages). Thanks.

Thank you siserou and Achim - it's all working wonderfully now. Probably just a little glitch.

I guess, it was a timeout problem. We give eBay 4 seconds to send us related products. If they are too slow, the module appears blank. We don't want to loose visitors, because of a slow third party connection ;-)

Actually, that's a protection against server errors: 4 secs in way enough for a normal response. But from time to time, an error occurs on either side ... and that's what the timeout is for.

Thanks Simon, this is helpful to consider in the future regarding such issues.

Quick question- when we populate an ebay module with products currently in auction (or are they from the stores?), and the auction ends, what happens to the module product area? If it's from the store and they remove the item what happens then? does it revert to the keyword and refresh, and if we used a product link specifically and they remove it what then? Is there any way to know without going to every article to check? Inquiring minds want to know.

Take a closer look at the module, Jerrico.

It updates automatically.

I just thought since we can cherry pick from results that it would maintain those results- does this mean if I cherry pick perfect things that it could change?

Again, try out the module. You can't "cherry-pick". The search (and ad selection) is based on cats, search terms and sellers, and it will update automatically with new, related finds.

By cherry pick I meant I put in a search phrase, and I can delete those that show up that I don't like or that don't fit, I didn't know it updated. :)
